I'm posting with the thought that this is sorta like buying a lottery ticket - in the end there's little chance of winning and it's a matter of chance, but if you don't post, you can't win.

You could make that part of the game and we track the progress with our postings...

Your post [#23] placed Bruce square (X*X) at the mid-point; thus he is first. 

My initial post [#19] still waits for futher posts to occur so I wait to be first.

However, this post [#24] establishes the dreaded even entry and thus there is no current "winner".

Actually, your post, Reply #24, makes the total post count 25 so post 13 (Reply 12) is the winner.

Now I have made the total post count 26 and nobody is the winner.

Indeed you are correct. I failed in the obvious!

This being reply #26 for a total of 27 posts puts reply #13 in the middle position and
none other than the original poster now holds the winning spot.

But someone's probably winning now, and I'm way too tired to figure out who it is.  It is definitely someone who posted before this post, though.   Evil

Reply #29 for a total of thirty posts.

The Secret Formula (you knew there had to be one, didn't you?) is:

Reply#/2+1 | Reply#/2 is a whole number (the | is notation meaning "given").

So this is Reply 30, and the winning number is (drumroll, please!)

16! (Reply 15)

It's ME!  Thank you, thank you. ;-)

So this is Reply 31.  31/2 = 15.5+1 = 16.5 

Half of two different people are winning!  :-P
